What does purple sound like? In the same way that artists create scenes with shapes and colors, composers paint pictures with sound. Join us for a colorful afternoon of musical portraits that offer glimpses into worlds of fantasy, memory, and landscapes near and far, with chamber music by Mozart, Milhaud, Bright Sheng, Joan Tower, and more.

Instrument Petting Zoo:
An instrument "Petting Zoo" and demonstration will follow the performance in the Library's beautiful outdoor Children's Garden. Children will be able to handle and play orchestral instruments as guided by the musicians, and will be encouraged to touch, blow, pluck, bow, and strike.
